A Dutch delft polychrome tile, from 1620 to 1650, with a bee resting on the petals of one flower (probably a snake’s head fritillary) with a second blossom on the same plant below it. The petals in blue and orange, also the bee. The leaves are green and the blue stem is growing out of a green bulb on the ground. Inside a blue three line octagon with gothic arches and the corners filled with a pattern of lines. The initials T G on the back. 5 inches (13 cm) square. A little less than ½ inch (1+ cm) thick.

Condition: good sized chip on the upper left edge and minor edge damage. Some surface craquelure and a little damage.
